Hi all.... have any of you used online dating sites? are there good honest SINGLE men on them really????
<snipped link - do not promote your hubs in the forums>
Yes they do. You are so focused on one person that you don't think about others. People on dating sites are looking for one thing: a relationship. So there aren't a barrage of mind games being played because you and the one your seeing are seeing each other to be in a relationship.
I say go for it, its actually a lot of fun!
My brother-in-law met his wife on an online dating site and they have been happily married for several years now. My impression is that these sites work best for people who have been around the block a few times, are more settled down and know what they are looking for in a partner. I think they have more realistic expectations and hopes than the younger crowd. Just my 2 cents...
They absolutely can work. You just have to be smart about it. Keep an eye open for red flags but also keep an open mind for what may come your way.
My main bit of advice is to meet relatively soon after getting to the phone stage. Don't talk for months and months because it tends to build up an idea of the person and in a lot of cases you may end up disappointed.
Use your common sense, follow your gut, and try not to overlook major red flags.
Yah online dating works lot for singles in search of partner. Many people go for online dating because it mainly concern for relationships. So, don't worry go and meet your partner in online dating.
Yes. Online dating can work. In December, I will be marrying a man I met online. We "clicked" right away, and after getting to know each other, we became engaged. This occurred over a period of time, following numerous messages, phone calls, letters, and meetings. I ended up moving to be near him....now we will be married soon.
I am all for internet dating.....
Yes, it really does! I met my girlfriend this way. Just know what you're looking for and sign up for some great sites. Be honest, but don't reveal too much information. Be safe, but have fun!
My boyfriend and I met on the internet a little over a year ago. We met in person about a month after meeting and have since been together for a year and a week. Have moved to Arizona together, moved back to Georgia, Traveled back and forth between families, been to 2 weddings, and one birth together. So yes internet dating does work though I must say it isn't always the dating sites that you meet that someone special. Terry and I met on a social networking site similar to Facebook and Myspace.
My fiance and I met online. We've been together 4 years, engaged for 2 & we have a child together.
Yes, online dating can & does work (you just have to be careful)
I've never used a dating site, so I can't speak for those. However, I did meet my husband online. It's probably the best way we could have ever met, because the first six months of our relationship were devoted entirely to talking and getting to know each other better since that was the only way we could spend time together. The first time I met him in person was when he moved in with me...and yes, we knew each other well enough to take that step with confidence...and neither of us have ever regretted it or looked back.
I don't know if having someone actively looking for a relationship such as on a dating site would really be a plus...though just guessing here, since I haven't done it. At the time my husband and I met, neither of us were looking and were actually just online to kill time in a friendly poker game. The result is that we were both very upfront and honest about who we were and didn't feel the need to pretend to try to make ourselves look better.
Few years ago I attended at Internet dating and I met Some interesting menu. But it is very easy to see just what you want to see, create illusions ..
I met my husband online. We've been married over 3 yrs.
..met my ex online...husband no. 5....think i'll check out 'oceansofpeople' just for fun......
Every person i know who have met someone online are stll with that person...what does that say about meeting people online?
My friend wrote a hub about it. hxxp://hubpages.com/hub/Online-Datingtips101 . He has done a lot of online dating. There are issues with it just like with regular dating.
I met my husband online, but it wasn't a dating site... just a regular forum. OH NO!!!
OH yes I do feel it does work. The man I am with, met on a dating site. However, I had to experience alot of "horrible" dates before he and I found one another. Not saying all men were bad, but I was overwhelmed by things I had never experienced before...the language, pictures I was sent, comments, it was overwhelming! lol But just like with anything, you take the bitter with the sweet. And hopefully you will find your perfect match! But be cautious also....a few tips...NEVER let them meet at your place. Meet at a public place for your first date. MAKE sure they send a recent pic, not one dated from 10 years ago. GOOGLE them, see if there is anything out there about them that is negative. Finally....if there is a comment section, where other people write remarks about them, might give you some insight on that person. Good luck and always be careful!
I date online. I have met some wonderful men and some that were not so wonderful. You do have to be catreful and don't wonder out of your comfort zone.Try to always meet in a public place. And be open minded..try meeting men you wouldn't normally meet at the market or laundrymat..lol
I met my hubby online and we have been happily maried almost 4 years now
I do not have personal experience in this but my cousins met their husbands on-line and they are happily married now.
I've been trying to date a few hubbers but they are all scared of me.
Of course internet dating works...Its just another forum to get introduced to people...
I've never done online dating, but I did meet my husband on line, actually I found him on e-Bay... LOL! He was selling something I lost the bid on and I contacted him to see if he could get me another, one conversation lead to another and the rest is history.
But some of my girlfriends who have used online dating have had less than stellar results. I'm surprised by all the positive responses I've read here. Good for you guys!
I met a few Trolls and others who have had their Links Snipped unceremoniously
PD you are ...
Wow! Actually I have never known any online relaionship to have worked out well ... ... I need to change my views now!
Internet dating can work absolutely same as a regular dating. A lot of my friends met each other online. You can use a lot of online communicators such as skype, msn, yahoo messengers to have capability not only chatting but also see a person. So don't be confused
I think looking for internet dating is not a good thing, because many young people in Indonesia who were deceived acquaintance in fb, yes maybe we should be more careful with someone who we know
I think its possible to meet some nice people, but in my experience some claim to be what there not, and now and days there's a lot of weirdo's and game players in it for the chase, but I have heard some success stories hear and there. Mostly older people capable of looking beyond the physical and falling in love with personality traits that suit them.
In my opinion it does work but there are more chances of you getting ditched ! It depends on how fast you grasp the person whom your dating.
Online dating can work...however it could take years of searching and many headaches along the way. much like normal dating. It is a great way to meet friends as well. If one will keep the idea that friends is all you expect.....then when and if the real deal comes along......you already have good friends ....even with your new love.
Good luck to all
Online dating...please, why not date a penpal from the joint.
Maybe you should see the good in people, before rushing to judgment. (((Hugs)))
in my experience works great!!
I've been using Flirtmaps for some months: it's a mobile app that allows to find smart people from your area and maybe meet them (if you want).
it helped me very much... actually, I' so shy...
No and yes
No, because my uncle got married to someone he met on a dating site, and they got divorced.
Yes, because he went back to the site and is now happily married.
Just like if you find your love out somewhere, it just comes down to you being happy with your lover. If you aren't it won't work.
there are no honest guys and girls out there on online dating sites,they just do it for their own pleasure and if you are not careful you might fall a victim.......
The overwhelming amount of guys using it as their platform to pick up chicks to do the same thing they do at bars far outweighs that of those looking for something substantial
Everything is all about what you put into it. Your healthcare, your childrens upbringing, your car, home, vacations,ect. Your relationships with most are going to reflect how much quality time one has put in.
I dated my neighbors son for 10 years...married an lasted 4 years. Ofcourse life changes......as do the varied ways of meeting people.
Good luck to you all that are looking for love and willing to do your homework to find the right one!!
He is just not into you after....online dating became reality
actually just had to experience one for my psycology degree) was very intresting and sad results)
some movies like "How to lose guy in 10 day" are realy funny but in reality its diffrent!! much diffrent and actually one more time was checked how to make out of a normal date just a hell) sometimes we all forgeting something and do something what we regret later but ...thats life)do u know this feeling when after a date you think "if i could say that instead of this...etc"))
Of course online dating works. It works just as well as dating in the real world.
It's a case of finding the right site to join where you'll find like minded people.
As with most things on the net, people present themselves as they want to be percieved not what they actually are so once you've made a connection it's good to get them in front of a video cam or on Skype to ensure your talking to the person who's in the picture.
You don't want to waste time talking to a 'fake' fat fifty year old guy from Uzbekistan when you thought you were falling in love with a 23 blonde hottie from Mayfair.
A good place to start is by reading articles on dating review sites or by talking to family and friends for dating site recommendations. Just aboit everyone I know has used an Dating site.
Yes they do work My Hubby and I have been married for almost year now
I've never had good experiences with it, but two of my cousins are happily in love. You have to be patient and develop a good creeper radar.
